Plastic films and bags

Plastic bags and bag packaging machines are probably the most common form of cleanroom packaging used worldwide. The nature of this new type of packaging makes it quite versatile in that it can be made into nearly all sizes and forms. Most large hospitals make use of sterile plastic bags which have the actual date and other informations printed onto the bag.
Small plastic bags or film bags can be found in almost all applications in Europe. These bags are lighter than normal sized and printed film bags and they are often made from a clear and durable film material in order to endure a small amount of clean content placed into it.
Similar to plastic bags used by packers to carry their goods, there are also variable size bags available for any kind of use. Unlike printed foils with handles for easy carrying, most packaging machines also produce bags with a self-containing surface. This means two film sheets that lay along the opening of the bag. When higher pressure is applied to the bag, generally from low temperatures, the bag becomes stable.
Selfmade plastic bags are ideal for the plastic bag packaging machinery and many other industries and they have countless uses, especially for smaller items supplied by hobby shops, hardware stores and so on. As these sealed plastic bags are able to keep the content air tight, they are very popular for the market.
